Mass Effect 3 Preorder Bonuses

GameStop announces in-game items as pre-order incentives for Mass Effect 3, BioWare's upcoming action/RPG sequel. They offer screenshots and trailers showing off the following items:

N7 “Valkyrie” Assault Rifle
After the carnage of the Battle of the Citadel, Alliance officers commissioned a new rifle for their ground forces. A variation of the popular Avenger design, the Valkyrie is now standard issue for new recruits. Exceptionally well-crafted, accurate, and packing ample firepower, the rifle is a hot black-market item on the rare occasion it surfaces.

N7 “Defender” Armor
The Defender Armor is a variation on the N7 Special Forces’ combat gear, built to protect soldiers in long-running engagements where reinforcements may be sparse. When the wearer fires a weapon, the suit's computers divert energy from the main power cell to the gun's kinetic coils, offering an extra punch. The Defender's storage compartments are designed to hold spare thermal clips, while capacitors throughout the armor provide extra power to shields during critical moments in battle. The armor also comes with an injection system built into the suit and neural-linked bio-monitors that help adjust the wearer's breathing rate and adrenaline levels.

No Steam. No buy.
Isn't it kind of ridiculous posting that on a day when Steam is completely FUBAR? D:

I played a bit of Oblivion before work *shrug*.

Cloud was down and friends still goes down frequently which sucks but I can't really argue with the price of the client. It was pretty solid throughout the sale other than the first hour which is what mattered most to me.

ME wiki:
N7 is a vocational code in the Systems Alliance military. The "N" designates special forces and the "7" refers to the highest level of proficiency. It applies to marines who have graduated from an elite training program.

But now:

Valkyrie is now standard issue for new recruits.

Im Commander Shephard, although secretly I wish that I could be Captain Kirk, or Picard, hell Ill even take Cisco. Ahhh to roam the galaxy in the Enterprise, to explore strange new life and civilizations to boldly go where no man (one) has gone before....


Imagine that, Bioware doing a ME3 style Star Trek game. Now that....that would be something that would approach awesomeness on an unprecedented level. Im very skeptical when it comes to Bioware but cinematic games they can do. Think about it: a ME3 approach (with some space combat thrown in) and with its "away" missions would be ideal for Star Trek.

Screw pre-ordering. I'll get it from GMG for $20 a few months after release - if its worth playing.

I'm rather happier with my Amazon pre-order bonus. The Valkyrie looks like a tuning fork, and the Defender armor is just James Vega's armor in N7 colors.

At least the M22 looks like an actual weapon.

I'm Commander Shepard and Best Buy is my favorite store on the Citadel. I'm Commander Shepard and GameStop is also my favorite store on the Citadel. I'm Commander Shepard and I hope ME3 actually has some meaningful choice and consequence as well as some measure of moral ambiguity.

These pre-order virtual items are useless as tits on a bull.

I'm Commander Shepard, and I demand you convert your money into worthless e-points and buy these as DLC.
